About Winter Garden and Plaza
With more than 20,000 square-feet of event space, the World Financial Center offers a variety of options for promotional activations, reaching more than 30,000 tenants in our Class A commercial and retail complex, in addition to local Downtown residents and visitors. From the magnificent Winter Garden, with its glass enclosed 120-foot atrium and grand marble staircase, to the outdoor Plaza with breathtaking views of the Hudson River, the World Financial Center creates an unforgettable experience.
The Winter Garden is a spectacular 3-story barrel-vaulted glass atrium, offering panoramic views of the future site of the World Trade Center and Lower Manhattan at one end, and showcasing a majestic bay window with magnificent views of the Hudson River on the other. The central feature of the Winter Garden is the grand semicircular staircase, fashioned of Italian marble, which opens to a grove of 45-foot palm trees.
Just outside the glass-enclosed Winter Garden is the Plaza, an open-air piazza overlooking the North Cove Harbor on the Hudson River. Gracing the riverfront adjacent to the Plaza are beautifully landscaped seasonal gardens along the Battery Park City Esplanade, reflecting pools and works of art including sculptures by world-renowned artists. Spectacular views of the Hudson River make the 10,000-square-foot Plaza a magnificent setting for outdoor events.
